In the beautiful forests of Drenthe, Landal Aelderholt is a superb choice for those wishing to experience the ’real’ Holland. A magical landscape of forest, meadowland, heather fields and farmland meets a wealth of excellent facilities - a recipe for a wonderful family holiday at any time of year. A stunning array of leisure choices ensures something to suit everyone. From splashing around in the wonderful indoor swimming pool, to the large indoor kids’ paradise, sauna, fishing on the lake and fabulous golf course opposite the park, Aelderholt will revitalise you!
The dreamy Drenthe landscape evokes images of megalithic tombs, woodland, welcoming farm villages and picture-postcard thatched houses, a rich cocktail of scenic delights best explored by bike - 1100km of cycle paths criss-cross its countryside. Also ripe for exploration is Drenthe’s fascinating historical legacy, not least the enigmatic ’Hunebedden’, a patchwork of imposing burial sites pre-dating Stonehenge. Another unmissable historic treat awaits at the village of Orvelte, a living museum depicting life from over a century ago. Just 500m from Aelderholt is De Mepperdennen, a striking forest hosting numerous walking trails, and no one should miss an alternative opportunity to view the landscape from the nearby Boomkroonpad (treetop path), the starting point for beautiful woodland walks through the Gieten-Borger national forest. Nearby is Emmen (15km), home of the fabulous Dierenpark Emmen, Europe’s best zoo, and Slagharen, with its much-loved theme park. Giethoorn, Holland’s famous ’Venice of the North’ where all traffic is by boat, is just a little further.
